Brody is all about some selflies these days.
Mason and I decided to take a walk Friday night. I guess we had never walked over and showed him the school in our neighborhood. He will go there in Kindergarten, so he was excited to see it. His legs were tired he said, so I gave him a piggy back ride. (I think he just wanted to catch a ride but I didn't mind!)
Mason had his first t-ball game Saturday morning. He did really good. I think he really likes hitting the best. We had a little confusion on where to run to after second base…he may have ran back to first. =) He is not a fan of fielding. He was giving his teammates the evil eye if they got to the ball before he did.
John going over the bases with him before the game.
Warming up with some teammates. He is #2.
Fun side note: John was #2 in high school.
Brody was excited to be there.
Playing in the dirt. =)
Mickey Mouse here to save the day running around with this rugrat.
John talking to Mason while they were batting. (trying to let him know it was okay he didn't get all the balls - no need to get mad!)
John said his "release" was great…whatever that means.
Later in the day, I wanted to walk around the Collierville square. John was exhausted from being at the gam for a couple of hours. He just gets so wiped out. So my mom picked us up and we just walked around looking at all the stores.
We ended our trip with frozen yogurt. The boys were in heaven. If you look closely at this picture, you can see that we basically were in the middle of wedding pictures. We had been sitting there for a while when a wedding party walked up. We asked the photographer if she needed us to move, but she said no. Next thing I know, a woman is almost standing on my toes trying to get a picture.
It was a looooong day of being outside. We came home, ate dinner, and played outside with the neighbors. We had two tired boys on our hands.
When I put Mason to bed, I thought to myself that he would be tossing and turning all night because he was so tired. He is just like me in that category. We both talk in our sleep, maybe even sleepwalk, when we are exhausted. I made him move to the center of his big ole' bed before he fell asleep.
Well thirty minutes later, John and I heard a loud thud and then crying. I knew instantly he had fallen. I will admit, he has fallen a couple of times. I recently bought a bed rail….but it was still in the garage.
He was still asleep but crying. The weird thing was his lip was almost quivering. It took us a while to calm him down, but it just didn't feel right. Ten minutes later, he was crying again. We put him in our bed and told him he could sleep with us. Then he started waking up every few minutes saying his shoulder hurt. I felt around his left shoulder and could feel that his clavicle had a big knot and seemed to be in two pieces. That wasn't good.
If he could have stayed asleep, we could've taken him to LeBonuer or Campbell's Clinic the next day, but he couldn't sleep without crying. John couldn't sit that long at the ER and someone need to stay with Brody, so I called my mom. I picked her up on the way to the hospital. In the mean time, I gave Mason Ibprofen and he fell asleep the entire car ride.
They put us on "fast track" when we got to the hospital but there was a bad wreck in Missouri and several kids were flighted to trauma. It took us five hours but fortunately, Mason slept the whole time. There were so many sick babies in there though. Makes you realize how fortunate we are.
We finally got back to a room. Thankfully, my wonderful husband grabbed his Cars fleece blanket in case it was cold and threw it in the car. It was FREEZING in that place!
Here he is peacefully sleeping.
As soon as they snapped the first X-ray, the tech said "oh, it's his clavicle".
He had broken his little collarbone. =(
The nurse came in, splinted him up, and wrapped him with the Ace bandage….then he gave him a popsicle. He was not happy he couldn't use both hands to hold the popsicle….
But he got over it when he realized he was eating a popsicle in the middle of the night.
He will have to be in the sling for 4 weeks. So no more t-ball for a while. We are hoping he can play the last two games. He also can't participate in recess the next two weeks. I thought he was be upset, but he said he is their new "helper" and was in Heaven. All the ladies at his school are being so sweet to him, and he is totally milking it.
No more baths together for a while. This little boy with the farmer's tan was lonely.
And sneaky. He opened a bottle of pills all by himself. It was a child proof cap! And he did it twice. I'm soon to be up for mother of the year over here...
Sunday, we someone how managed to get up (after two hours of sleep) and go to Katie and Kyle's surprise baby shower. She had no idea and it was perfect. We had such a great time and can't wait for that sweet baby girl to get here!
Crazy these guys are about to or have babies.
LOVE our friends.
We need some rest on a rainy Sunday afternoon.
John isn't going to let him fall off again. The rail actually only comes up to the top of the mattress. It is just such a big bed, but he put pillows in their to help block him.
And John is doing great! I got to take out his stitches!!! I was really hoping he would let me do it. He was nervous with each one, but they didn't hurt. Just call me Nurse Crissy.
Thank goodness for the rail and pillows…this kid just sleeps so crazy sometimes! I swear he eats. This is just a bad angle.
I told him he could stay home with Daddy Monday or go on to school. He said he wanted to go to school so he could show his friends his arm. Right before we left he started complaining of a tummy ache. I had John come access the situation, because I didn't think he was being for real. John decided he should stay home. An hour after I left, Mason told him he had "tricked us" so he could stay home. I cannot believe this would happen at the age of 4!!!
I went through the whole Boy Cries Wolf thing. But I thought he deserved a fun, relaxing day with his Daddy. They ended up having a really fun day.
But back to school Tuesday it was!
Brody had an ENT appt. that morning, so he helped me drop off Mason at school.
His ears looked great and we ran into a friend from Pat's house.
We also got to go through a car wash. He wasn't too sure about it, but was laughing by the end. =)
